$GMC24 is bundle of 24 Genesis MoonCats that have been sharded on the Niftex platform so that anyone can easily be a part of MoonCat history. The bundle was procured by RedCave Ventures and consists of 12 white and 12 black genesis cats. A percentage of the shards will be airdropped to the MoonCat community for the support they have given, along with another percentage going to the devs as a thank you for building the project. I will cover the specifics later in the article.
$GMC24 launches 04/25/2021 at 2pm UTC on the Niftex Platform

A History of the MoonCats
The MoonCatRescue project was created back in 2017 shortly after the Cryptopunks project started but before Cryptokitties came along. These crypto-collectible cats were created by two developers that go by the name “Ponderware”. The original plan was for 25,600 of the normal cats to be rescued from the moon, along with 256 Genesis MoonCats. The normal cats were free to rescue (just costing gas for the transaction) and the Genesis MoonCats would be purchased in a tiered system.
Unfortunately there was a bug in the contract that prevented the Ponderware devs from being able to access the funds from any genesis sales. Eventually the project died. For a time at least..
In March of 2021 people started digging for “OG NFT Projects” and a Twitter user Tilopa tweeted out about MoonCatRescue:
Within hours Twitter was going crazy as people rushed to rescue as many cats as they could. The MoonCat Ethereum fees reached $600,000 that day and MoonCat Mania was in full swing.
In the end, 25,344 normal MoonCats and 96 Genesis MoonCats were able to be rescued.
